English-Russian newcomer TATYANA has shared her new single ‘Wild Card’.
The multi-faceted songwriter blends electronic production to her trusty harp, with TATYANA’s gorgeous voice at the centre of it all.
Out now, ‘Wild Card’ is the start of her adventures, an ode to the “imaginary Russian lover I never had”.
Airy production, with a lo-fi 80s leaning digitalism, gives way to layers of cooing vocals before TATYANA’s plaintive delivery seizes control.
Reference points could drift between Kate Bush, Bjork, and Tears For Fears, but there’s also something vividly original at work.
“There’s a place in the Russian countryside I used to go to as a kid with a beautiful river and a tiny village. I imagined what it might be like to grow up in a place like that and wanting to break free and go see the rest of the distant, outside world. It’s about first love and believing it will go on forever because you’re bonded by your dreams and your memories.”
